Max Muncy Says Hector Neris Shouted An Expletive At Dodgers' Dugout

Jul 19, 2019 7:44 AM

The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-6 on Thursday.

Hector Neris closed out the victory, though he made things interesting.

He gave up a solo homer to Alex Verdugo and a long fly ball out to Justin Turner to end the game. After that final out, Neris appeared to shout something toward the Dodgers dugout. Max Muncy said Neris yelled "f--- you" toward the visitor's dugout.

Benches did not clear but several Dodgers came out of the dugout to respond to Neris.

"He's blown about eight saves against us over the last two years. I guess he was finally excited he got one," Muncy said.
